At HCASA, we are committed to consumer and community participation in health and medical research and in using available evidence to inform our work. We believe consumers and the community have a right to be involved in the research that affects them. HCASA has developed a number of key partnerships in order to advance consumer and community participation in health and medical research.

HCA is partner of the SA-NT DataLink collaboration which provides high quality data linkage services to support research, policy development, service planning and evaluation. Providing access to accurate and unbiased information held by government agencies and other organisations that can better inform research, policies and practices is central to the role of SA NT DataLink. De-identified data linked for large or entire populations are much more inclusive, representative and unbiased, and also more cost effective and efficient than conventional studies based on sampling.
